Spectatuclar begins and flops to LCS Summer season – Week 2 Preview

The LCS Summer season cut up kicked off on June 17 with ten groups itching to make a powerful case for LoL Worlds 2022.

Whereas most groups have caught to what’s tried and examined, few like Cloud9, have partaken within the LCS Mid-SeasonRoster Shuffle. It’s all eyes on securing a spot for post-season, particularly with Worlds being on residence court docket this 12 months.

Let’s check out what went down in Week 1, and what can we anticipate transferring ahead.


Group Liquid & Evil Geniuses again to type

First up, the formidable mixture of Bwipo, Santorin, Bjergsen, Hans Sama and CoreJJ is predicted to run roughshod over the others. This can be a full package deal if there was one. Having spent good day off and having returned re-energised, TL are the favorites to win Summer season, and guide their berth on the Worlds. Nevertheless, they had been absolutely the favorites in Spring and nonetheless managed to fumble it in the long run.

Evil Geniuses handed the good litmus check of the groups’ proficiency and talent to deal with stress into Week 1. Spring Playoffs weren’t a fluke and coming into Summer season, each them and TL are the groups the watch all all through the season.

It’s onerous to position LoL bets towards both in any case they’ve completed.

CLG & 100 Thieves to battle for third

100T had been thought of among the many favorites forward of Summer season and are seemingly getting a 2-0 in Week 2. CLG was not on our radar, however after a 3-0 begin and dominating the “backside pack” they’re instantly taking a look at a 4th or higher in the event that they proceed the development. We now have an odd pairing for third/4th place between two groups on completely different ends of our LCS Power Rankings.

CLG meets FLY and EG in Week 2 and should finish with an similar file to 100T come Sunday.

CLG Summer Week 2

New 9/9 quartet: Golden Guardians, FLY, Immortals, TSM

On paper, all 4 groups are Playoffs contenders. Their duels will determine seeding and rating for Summer season Playoffs. These groups like to skirmish and are extraordinarily proficient at it. All of them have exceptionally gifted gamers who’ve made fairly a press release within the North American area, and it elicits huge pleasure. But, all 4 are additionally susceptible to excessive fumbles and coin-toss fights that find yourself costing them video games.

There’s a custom of 9-9 data within the LCS. Throughout Spring it was EG, GG and FlyQuest, and in summer time we anticipate Immortals and TSM to be on this pack as EG will get elevated.

Primarily based on Week 1 performances, all 4 groups can have a season riddled with inconsistency.

Cloud9 down unhealthy, Dignitas may go 0-5

Cloud9 role-swapped Ibrahim ‘Fudge’ Allami again into the highest lane and introduced again legacy mid laner Nicolaj ‘Jensen’ Jensen within the mid-season. He began with C9 and regardless of not gaining a lot success, that is the group that has made him the participant he’s. After he was benched by Group Liquid, the group he moved to, he didn’t have a group throughout Spring. Now, he’s again and replaces a prolific participant in Summit. Fudge had proven nice enchancment within the prime lane since he began out in C9. He was considered one of their finest gamers in Summer season 2021.

On paper, they regarded higher than Spring, but a 0-3 begin to Summer season whereas shedding to Golden Guardians, doesn’t appear promising. In Week 2 they face Dignitas and 100Thieves. We would see lastly a win on the board towards DIG. however But, Week 2 ending at 1-4 is greater than seemingly.

In the long run, we’ve got Dignitas coming from a troublesome 0-3 week. Whereas they missed Spring Playoffs by only one sport, Dignitas got here into the summer time with excessive ambitions, solely to be put down by the cut up favorites in fast succession.

They’ve Week 2 matches towards the lowfielders (Immortals and Cloud9) and in the event that they fumble right here they’re taking a look at 0-5 and probably lacking Playoffs from the get go.
